ACADEMIC HERALDRY: THE SYMBOLS OF LEARNING 

The university commencement procession is a pageant, alive and 
bright with the dress and ceremony inherited from the medieval universities 
of the eleventh and twelfth centuries. 

To preserve their dignity and meaning it became necessary for these 
universities to set rules for academic dress. American universities agreed 
on a definite system in 1895 and set up a code of academic dress. In 1932 
the American Council on Education presented a revised code which governs 
the style today. 

The Gown. The flowing gown comes from the twelfth century. It 
has become symbolic of the democracy of scholarship, for it completely 
covers any dress of rank or social standing beneath it. It is black for all 
degrees with pointed sleeves for the Bachelor's degree; long closed sleeves 
for the Master's degree, with a slit for the arm; and round open sleeves for 
the Doctor's degree. The gown worn for Bachelor's or Master's degrees 
has no trimmings. The gown for the Doctorate degrees is faced down the 
front with velvet and has three bars of velvet across the sleeves, in the 
color distinctive of the discipline to which the degree pertains. For certain 
institutions the official colors of the college or university may appear on 
the gown or its decorations. 

The Cap. The freed slave in Ancient Rome won the privilege of 
wearing a cap, and so the academic cap is a sign of the freedom of 
scholarship and the responsibility and dignity with which scholarship endows 
the wearer. Old poetry records the cap of scholarship as square to symbolize 
the book, although some authorities claim that the mortar board is the 
symbol of the masons, a privileged guild. The color of the tassel on the 
cap denotes the discipline, although a gold tassel may be worn with a 
doctoral gown. 

The Hood. Heraldically, the hood is an inverted shield with one or 
more chevrons of a secondary color on the ground of the primary color of 
the college. The color of the facing of the hood denotes the discipline 
represented by the degree; the color of the lining of the hood designates 
the university or college from which the degree was granted. 

The Mace. The mace, carried by the Chief Marshal, was in 
medieval times a weapon of war. Today it is a ceremonial symbol of 
authority. It is universally carried in academic and ecclesiastical processions. 

The mace carried in today's procession was conceived, designed 
and made by Jesse O. Morgan, a friend of LSU Medical Center in 
Shreveport. 



Oath of Hippocrates 

I do solemnly swear by that which I hold most sacred that I will be loyal 
to the Profession of Medicine and just and generous to its Members. 

That I will lead my life and practice my Art in uprighteousness and 
honor. 

That into whatever house I will enter, it shall be for the good of the 
sick to the utmost of my power. 

That, holding myself aloof from wrong, from corruption, from the 
tempting of others to vice, I will exercise my Art solely for the cure of 
my patient and will give no drug, perform no operation for a criminal 
purpose, even if solicited, far less suggest it. 

That whatsoever I shall see or hear of the lives of men which is not 
fitting to be spoken, I will keep inviolably secret. 

These things do I promise. And in proportion as I am faithful to this, 
my oath, may happiness and good repute be ever mine. In the opposite 
if I shall be foresworn.
